Archive Collection

Scope and Content

This collection consists of two parts: Käthe Spiegel's personal and family papers, including obituaries of her father; and an essay entitled 'Studieen zum Werke des Agathokles', a cover title for a critique of Mein Kampf .

Administrative / Biographical History

Dr. Käthe Spiegel was the daughter of the Professor of Public Law at the German University of Prague, and for many years senate member of the Parliament of Czechoslovakia, Dr. Ludwig Spiegel. She trained as a historian and librarian and worked as her father's secretary. She also worked for a number of other mostly student organisations in Prague. Letters of reference suggest that she probably emigrated to Great Britain in 1939.
